This 1976 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible represents the best of what you get when an upper-class convertible is treated with the respect it deserves. In fact, its exceptional originality mixed with a true V8 cruiser has assured that this drop-top classic is a true award-winner.
The story we're told on this one is that it's a low ownership classic where the ultra-low odometer is believed to reflect the car's actual mileage. And when you see the excellent documentation, including the original bill of sale and long maintenance log, you really do see a definite commitment to long term care. So you know this is a car that showcases Cadillac's excellence from its golden era. And speaking of gold, the Amberlite Firemist is the original factory application, and it has the high gloss of true distinction (in fact, it's probably a good detailing away from wining this convertible another award.) The body loves to showcase Cadillac's expensive sheetmetal forms in a crisp and quality presentation. The details are awesome with mirror-like bumpers, complete polyurethane end caps, and crisp Cadillac logo details on the tall front marker lights. And we especially how the pinstripe on the hood coordinates with the wheel covers for a true understated touch of class.
The golden tan tones of the new roof go nicely with the exterior paint, and you get a similar distinction from the Light Buckskin leather interior. This has a well-preserved vintage luxury look everywhere from the supple seats to the working courtesy lights. You have all the best features, including power front seats, power locks, cruise control, a tilt steering column, and provisions for A/C climate control (will need servicing to continuously blow cold.) While this has a fantastically original style presentation, you'll also see there is an upgrade to an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input. It's a reminder that a car like this was made to be enjoyed, and so you get to have the best in modern driving music. The power windows and power convertible top mean you never have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your-hair experience. But if you really want to look upper-class, take an extra moment to put the color-matched hard boot cover in place (it also makes this particularly nice for parades.)
Cadillac's big 500 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top is a terrific reason all on its own to want this Eldorado. But as you look thought the whole engine bay, you're going to see an exceptional effort in preservation, right down to the radiator clips. And so with this high level of conservation it's easy to believe this it's the original motor. While it looks like this one has averaged less than 850 miles annually, we know you won't be able to resist adding to the odometer. The V8 fires up readily, idles smoothly, and the three-speed automatic transmission shifts crisply. So this classic just begs to be driven. A supple ride, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes are all part of this boulevard-ready package.
The sale comes complete with the original bill of sale, owner's manual, maintenance log, and multiple awards this convertible has already received. Here's a classic Cadillac that lives up to its true premium image. Call today!!!
